    Some of the radios/APRS are separate modules so you can actually take the APRS off and lock it up in an ammo can or smash it with a rock. I might go that route.

    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    I just have to say the system itself is very useful. As far as it being "public" all Ham Radio is public, so no weird attempt at hiding expected at Ham Lines. For instance just to have a license in Canada you are effectively sharing your address with the world which is a major security risk.

    Now in looking at the google APRS maping, it is very interesting to use this to locate various routes, and infrastructure. It is notable that in a private function - if it were legal ex. WROL, how a technologically savy prepping group could utilize this technology, such as a large group such as REACT, or SAFE. However, for most small scale prepping groups cells will likely have little use for it, I could see company sized pretting groups to get some use out of this sort of JTF integrated JADEish system incorporating APRS or some type of tracking and reporting system.

    budgetprepp did you mention DL chips?.....and you forgot to mention credit card chips?

    I have seen a conspiracy video claiming chips are in some of the prepackaged foods we eat. Far fetched? If it isn't true, just give them a little more time. Another good reason maybe to get off the processed food diet.
